Which is why I said "Inadvertently mislead".  The full title is not 
"Lady of the Rose", it is "Companion of the Order of the Rose".  Earl 
Dafydd, in his humor, implies a restriction of the order to members of 
the gentler sex, which does not really apply.  Now he may not aspire to 
the Order, but he is certainly not forbidden it by accident of birth.

I'm glad to hear that you have Don Juan blooming.  I hope he will prove 
most fruitful this year.
